Kansas man remains jailed for alleged arson at apartment complex

HUTCHINSON — A Kansas man remains in custody for suspicion of arson for an incident in the Plaza Towers Apartments, 17 E. 2nd Street in Hutchinson.

Just before 10p.m. November 26, officers were called to assist Hutchinson firefighters after Abraham Tinsley allegedly started a fire in his apartment to try to commit suicide and injure others in the building, according to police.

The incident did cause some damage to the apartment and forced the evacuation of the entire building.

Tinsley is also accused of striking a woman in the head who was helping evacuate the building. For this, he also faces a battery charge.

Tinsley is being held on a $53,000 bond and will be back in court this week.
